Holiday plans

Look at the conversation, then answer the questions.

So, Dave, where shall we go on holiday this year?

I don't know, Lucy. Have you ever been to China?

No, I haven't, but it's a long way to China! What about Russia? Have you been there?

Yes, I have. I went to Moscow about 10 years ago. It was very interesting!

Shall we go to Russia then? Would you like to go again?

Yes, I would, but it is quite expensive to visit Moscow. Have you ever visited Austria or Switzerland?

Yes, I've been to the Alps in Austria. We went skiing when I was a child. But I think it's expensive there too.

OK. How about Wales. Have you ever climbed Snowdon?

No, I haven't. Is it nice there?

The mountains are beautiful, and it's not too expensive. Let's go to Wales!

OK, Wales it is!
